The family run hotel is just a short walk through the park. The Goethestraße with its old trees and flowers, together with its impressive art nouveau and Wilhelminian style villas is an oasis of peace in the middle of this lively capital city. Just by entering the hotel you will be thrilled by the lobby and public areas, its individual charm and collection of antiques paying homage to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe where the hotel gets its name from. The owner family has tastefully decorated all rooms with loving care and attention to detail. You can expect a friendly atmosphere and 65 comfortable rooms with bath/WC, color TV, telephone and a fax connection. "La Cocagna" restaurant with its Mediterranean flair services a selection of regional and Mediterranean bistro dishes, with select wines by the bottle or glass if you wish. The "Weimar" meeting room is available for your meetings and events. For smaller events the Library is available, where you can pick up a good book. . . Goethe for example? Magdeburg, with its 1200 years history, an abundance of art, buildings (such as the Gothic Cathedral) and parks is well worth a visit and stay at the Best Western Hotel Geheimer Rat. Enjoy your stay.
